Take Care of Brushes

If you have completed one, part and going to paint the other one then please wash the brushes first. After washing brush start a new part. It will help to give your canvas a fresh texture because no color is mixing with it. It is the original one.

Amount of Paint

Use enough paint to cover any area but be precise while painting. Your amount should be enough to cover the area but the color should not enter in the next part connected to your painted area. Do not over-use the paint or you can run out of paint and have to wait for a few days for new paint cups to arrive.

Take Time

If you want a good result of your effort than before applying let the previous one dry. The time taken by an area to dry depends on the thickness of application. So be patient and let the first part dry after it you can paint the other one.

Choice of a Workplace

The peaceful place is the best place to paint. In peace, we can concentrate in a better way and it helps to focus on the theme of the painting. Together with peaceful environment, the place should be bright and you should have the magnifying glass with you with painting so small area cannot neglect.
